Short Spine Algae Destroyer Urchin

Echinometra lacunter
Size:1-2 inches
Diet: Grazing herbivore
Reef Safe:Yes
Best Use:Algae Control

Dr. Mac's Comments:

Short spine urchins are excellent algae grazers that eat many types of algae including coralline and are hardy reef animals and do well in most marine aquariums. Less prone to carrying and rearranging small items than their Pincushion cousins. Take care with acclimating as they are somewhat sensitive to water chemistry changes. Their spines are sharp so be careful in handling. Coloration varies.
